The 2010 Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing is kicking off today in Atlanta. Those of you who are here: keep an eye out for me — I’d love to chat with GF readers if we can manage to meet up. One good time to find me is the poster session, since I’ll be tied to my poster and easy to track down, and another good time is to catch me speaking at 4:15 on Thursday on the Getting Started in Open Source panel.
For those of you not here, there’s a few ways you can enjoy the conference without attending, which Kate summarized in her post Attending GHC from afar.
Here’s some links:
- You can check out the blog and the community blog feed where a variety of volunteer community bloggers will be talking about the sessions they’ve attended. I’m one of the many community bloggers!
- If you want more detail about a given session, there’s also the GHC10 notes wiki which will include notes on many of the sessions.
- There’s no live streaming of the sessions, but you can search for the #ghc10 hashtag on twitter to get the live tweets from the conference, or listen in on chatter from <a href="http://twitter.com/ghc/ghc10-attendeesthe list of conference attendees.
- Not up to drinking from the firehose? You can also follow @ghc, the official conference twitter account, or just the ghc10 speakers (that includes me!)
- There’s a GHC 2010 flickr group for photos. You’ll probably start seeing those go up tonight!
- Just because it’s not live doesn’t mean there’s no video! Check out the ghc2010 youtube group. Ed and Ashley did great 5 minute interviews last year, and I’m looking forwards to seeing what the other community volunteers will take this year!
- And there’s a facebook group for ghc10 too.
